It priced at $50 MIB, so despite the fact that I was cutting back I felt I might be missing a serious opportunity. I bought him immediately. Wow, every joint is ratcheted, no ball joints, the plastic is unbelievable sturdy and heavy. G1 styled figures with pre oil crisis plastic and engineering, it's a marvelous thing. I think most people would call him a shell former, but when you open the shell, none of his parts are immediately recognizable, so Id say he's not a true shell former. My only criticism is the use of chrome, that is sure to chip, his legs are largely chrome....but painted black, so chipping the black paint would reveal chrome... Interesting. Anyway, I love that this Megatron carries an unapologetically large and sturdy, static plasma cannon and unique angry and I might say tyrannous face sculpt. Just my thoughts.
